How about you? Do you like to sew something imaginative… or meet a goal on Sundays or do you refrain from all work on Sundays? Recently this question was asked on a couple quilting boards I am a part of on facebook and I wondered if any of you guys believe Sunday should be a day of rest only.
Personally I can’t imagine hand quilting NOT being relaxing and meditative.. I find it totally relaxing yet focused… but it is my favorite part of the quilting process and I am finally BACK!!!! So I had to rearrange my space a bit…
Above you will see my design wall in the background holding up the 2 completed hexi star flowers… these will be pot holders to adorn my kitchen… and to use! lol Not the table topper they were meant to be… and that is okay with me 🙂
Just in front of those hexis I have a stool… that is where the quilt sits as I do not use a hoop but quilt heavily pinned only using a table/stool/ironing board.. to support the quilt. As I quilt an area I remove the pins… one at a time. I have to watch my tension very closely and check it often but I enjoy quilting this way..
As a child doing handwork came naturally for me and no one told me hoops should be used when they watched me stitch… now as I quilt… I find many want to share what I should do differently to get a different type of stitch.. well here are my stitches! ….
And I do have a hoop if I have a quilty friend come visit they are welcome to use it… and I may use it myself one day… but not for this project 🙂
So I am one happy girl today as I slow stitch the heat away in my mind… the feels like temperature here has been in the 100’s all week long !!! I know… I live in Florida … what do I expect… well a breeze would help! ha 🙂
Hope you have a blessed Sunday however you spend it.
